In the joy of the Resurrection, the community celebrated today the junior profession of vows of Br Patrick Mary Hobbs, younger brother of Br Gregory Mary. Br Patrick joins the ranks with Br Francisco as our second professed lay brother.
Due to travel restrictions Br Patrick’s family was unable to attend, but they followed the ceremony thanks to the live-stream and were also able to have a good parlour time with the two brothers in the afternoon. Thank God for the technology!
We give thanks to God for this newly professed member, bringing our total number of professed monks to six.
Please keep Br Patrick and the rest of us in your prayers.
Fr Prior’s homily from the Mass of profession can be found under the Thoughts from the Cloister button.
